The Tainted Times - March 2018

Recommended Posts

And again!  A day late, but hey... if the roll call ain't up yet, that just means I'm the BEST STAFF MEMBER. :wink:

You love me.  You know you do.  :dry:




No brave souls faced the insanity in March - alas!  





Staff is still discussing the suggested change to promotion requirements.  Stay tuned!





The February Saidin Class has extended into March (and April).  If @Nikon hasn't been eaten by eels, we look forward to completing the class and having a few newly informed Soldiers to boss around.  





Darthe's About A Girl mafia game (located in the main mafia board) is still looking for signups - if you are a mafia addict, or a recovering addict, or a gullible sucker who just can't say no, your signup is welcome!





What's new since the last Tainted Times:

Mashi tells us about her Asha'man coat

Ithi trained DJ in the ways of the One Power Battles (private board)

Leyrann and Illian Tear continue to be frustrated by the OP rollers at every turn (private board)

Niniel has set up a predictions game for the new Avengers Infinity War movie... come earn points!


Not so new, but recently active:

Discussion continues on the Marvel Universe

Is it spring yet?  The argument over weather vs. astronomy continues.

Leyrann's The Way of Kings thread has morphed into discussing all things Sanderson, and also random other reading material.

The 250,000 post thread is still alive and kicking.  Very slowly.

February's Saidin Class marches on!  (private board)





The 250,000 Post Thread Update (because we're masochists):

          As of March 4, 2018:              237,437 replies

          As of April 2, 2018:                 237,662 replies


We're up 225 from last month - can we make the goal by the end of 2018? 


The Battle for Spam Supremacy:

          Black Tower:                          711,499 posts (up 468 from March 4)

          General Discussion:             982,634 posts (up 759 from March 4)


General Discussion has slowed its roll a bit, but the Tower continues to fall behind in its effort to reign as Spam Overlords of DM.  Will April prove to be more spam-filled?  ONLY TIME WILL TELL.





Yours till the brownies run dry...

    • Bayle Domon is an intelligent man who acts gruff, but seems to have a heart of gold. Though it states that he is a broad, muscular man with a round face, his appearance to a degree is less integral than the character, IMO. He makes me think of a snugly teddy bear who could kill if need be.   At the moment my heart is quite set on Jeffrey Dean Morgan:   Jeffrey Dean Morgan (born April 22, 1966) is an American actor. He is known for his roles as John Winchester on the fantasy horror series Supernatural (2005–07, 2019), Denny Duquette on the medical drama series Grey's Anatomy (2006–09), The Comedian in the superhero film Watchmen (2009), Jason Crouse on the political drama series The Good Wife (2015–16), Negan on the horror drama series The Walking Dead (2016–present), and Harvey Russell in Rampage (2018).
    • Tam al'Thor doesn't actually appear in the series except the first chapter or 2, a bit in the middle, and then towards the end again. Much is made of his fighting skills, but it's not shown very often. As such, I don't think it's necessary to get someone known for those skills to be the actor. Obviously if one can be found, wonderful.   I've not really made up my mind about an actor, but I have this offering:   Billy Burke: William Albert Burke (born November 25, 1966) is an American actor. He is known for his role as Charlie Swan in Twilight and its sequels. In 2011, he played Cesaire in Red Riding Hood. In 2012, he was cast as one of the lead characters, Miles Matheson, in the NBC science-fiction series Revolution. From 2015 to 2017, he starred in the CBS series Zoo. He has also appeared in the supernatural horror film Lights Out (2016) and the thriller Breaking In (2018).   He's done quite well at playing the solid, supporting father. He's not bad on the eye either. He can bulk up if need be.            
    • There is a faint arrow next to the Revol...   If you press that arrow it will take you to page 4.
    • Grouped together roughly for order of appearance we have Tam al’Thor, Bayle Domon and Gareth Bryne.   Description of Tam al'Thor:     Description of Bayle Domon:
            Description of Gareth Bryne:
            My sources were Wikipedia and WoT Encyclopedia.        
    • If you think like a Tinker you might enjoy reading this.  I'm having trouble getting the link to work.  It's page 4 of "The Way of the Leaf...A Tinker's Song" in the Revolution One roll play area:
